POKHARA: Nepali Congress former General Secretary and former House Speaker Taranath Ranabhat was all praise for late former NC President and former Prime Minister Krishna Prasad Bhattarai, recalling him as selfless, patriotic and a man of conviction.

At a programme held on Friday by Nepali Congress Kaski chapter to mark the 93rd birth anniversary of Bhattarai, Ranabhat pointed out that the saint leader had never done anything that weakened the party or the country.

Ranabhat expressed his concerns that the emerging trust issues within the party would weaken the party and stoke political unrest.

Similarly, President of the Kaski Nepal Press Union Shiromani Baral took the opportunity to stress the need to end factionalism in order to strengthen party organisation.
